According to the records, St.John brought Virgin Mary to Ephesus after the death of Christ. There, in the vicinity of Ephesus 7 kilometers from Selçuk, a small house, The House of Virgin Mary (Meryemana Evi-Mother Mary's House "House of the Virgin Mary"),was built for her. She had lived the final years of her life here. The house was discovered in 19th century. Catholic pilgrims visit the house based on the belief that Virgin Mary lived here.The house has received the official sanction of the Vatican.
